  1. I just received the Badfinger disc today and the packaging is quite stunning. Crystal clear color photos on the 2CD gatefold. Silver pressed CD’s, CD’s are housed in a plastic sleeve within the shiny glossy gatefold. Nice obi strip – strip is a fold over kind of strip – it’s not glued together. A very nice visual presentation by Green Apple – it looks professional! Now I will dig into the music within….

    • So now I see that the new Badfinger boot ‘Without You’ is actually a recycled ‘For Pete’s Sake’ bootleg. This new bootleg adds more tracks on the second disc than the ‘For Pete’s Sake’ boot.

      These tracks below are what this new Badfinger boot adds that ‘For Pete’s Sake’ didn’t have.
      SECRET BONUS TRACK
      PIANO RED – Unreleased / SWEET TUESDAY MORNING – Alternate take / NO GOOD AT ALL – Straight up unreleased / LOVING YOU – Alternate version / DREAMING – Ass unreleased / ROCK’N’ROLLER – Ass unreleased / REGULAR – Alternate version / REGULAR – Alternate mix / WHEN I SAY – Early take / BLIND OWL – Early rehearsaL / TIMELESS – Early take / TIMELESS – Alternate take / I CAN LOVE YOU – Take #7

      Oh well – better luck next time.
